Russ Wiles Arizona Republic Published 6:50 PM EDT Mar 21, 2019 The Arizona Republic will begin printing a Tucson newspaper under an agreement announced Thursday. The Arizona Daily Star newspaper in Tucson will print its editions at a Republic plant in Phoenix starting May 21, under an agreement with Gannett Co. Inc., owner of The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com. The move means the end of about 60 jobs at the Star's print operations in Tucson. Each night, the newspapers will be trucked down to Tucson for distribution. In announcing the change, John D’Orlando, the Star’s president and publisher, said the move is based on the high cost of maintaining multimillion-dollar printing presses both in Tucson and Phoenix as more and more people move from print to online to get their news. “The decision to move our printing and packaging work to Phoenix was not arrived at lightly,” D’Orlando told the Arizona Daily Star. “But having a press that has … [Read more...] about Tucson’s Arizona Daily Star will shift print operations to Phoenix

Yvonne Wingett Sanchez Arizona Republic Published 6:37 p.m. UTC Aug 16, 2018 Meghan McCain, the daughter of U.S. Sen. John McCain, tore into U.S. Rep. Martha McSally late Wednesday for snubbing her father while supporting legislation named in his honor. McCain, a political commentator and co-host of ABC's "The View," returned to Arizona this week following a honeymoon with her husband. Late Wednesday night, she wrote on Twitter that McSally's "inability to even mention my father's name when discussing the bill named in his honor is disgraceful (just as it was with Trump) — I had such higher hopes for the next generation of leadership in my home state." McSally, a two-term congresswoman in a three-way contest to win the GOP nomination for Arizona's open U.S. Senate seat, was one of six congressional members at Fort Drum in upstate New York on Monday with President Donald Trump.

Michael Lev Arizona Daily Star Published 9:24 p.m. UTC Aug 9, 2018 Arizona Wildcats quarterback Khalil Tate appears on one of four regional covers of the upcoming Sports Illustrated college football preview. Although SI isn’t the monolith it once was, that’s still a big deal. But it could have been even bigger. That’s the takeaway of Darren Rovell, the veteran sports business reporter for ESPN. The SI cover presented a prime promotional opportunity for the UA, which desperately wants to sell out Arizona Stadium. But by excluding him from post-practice media availability Tuesday, the school did not fully capitalize on it. Arizona Wildcats quarterback Khalil Tate made one of four regional Sports Illustrated covers. First, the positives: SI’s selection of Tate for its West Coast cover affirmed his marketability. Those choices are based largely on what will sell the most magazines in bookstores and at newsstands. Tate is believed to be the first active UA … [Read more...] about Did Arizona Wildcats miss opportunity after Khalil Tate appeared on SI cover?
Bruce Pascoe Arizona Daily Star Published 7:42 p.m. UTC Aug 8, 2018 The NCAA announced sweeping changes Wednesday that, among other things, will speed along any investigation into Arizona and other programs caught in an ongoing FBI probe. The NCAA said its investigators can now accept “information established by another administrative body, including a court of law, government agency, accrediting body or a commission authorized by a school.” The FBI certainly qualifies, meaning that information gathered as part of its investigation into college basketball could be used by NCAA investigators as it pursues sanctions. Previously, the NCAA investigated all cases on its own in what was often a time-consuming, expensive process. The NCAA announced the actions on its website. Arizona and other programs have been the subject of an ongoing FBI probe over the last year. A federal complaint made public last Sept. 26 said then-UA assistant coach … [Read more...] about NCAA changes could speed up investigation into Arizona Wildcats, other teams in FBI probe
Michael Lev Arizona Daily Star Published 3:33 p.m. UTC Jul 26, 2018 LOS ANGELES — A year ago, Khalil Tate was Arizona’s backup quarterback — a four-star recruit, a local legend but still a relative unknown. A year later, Tate represented the Wildcats at Pac-12 Media Day. No one could have seen that coming last summer, including Tate himself. “No,” Tate said Wednesday amid a throng of reporters. “I’m the type of person, I like to take it day by day.” One day last October, Tate’s life changed. He replaced the injured Brandon Dawkins at Colorado, rushed for an FBS-record 327 yards and became a true overnight sensation. After winning an unprecedented four straight Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week awards and finishing 2017 with 1,411 rushing yards, Tate popped up on every preseason list of potential Heisman Trophy candidates. He appeared on magazine covers. Pundits gushed about his dual-threat talents. Fame, Tate is … [Read more...] about Arizona Wildcats QB Khalil Tate deals with spotlight, ‘noise’ at Pac-12 Media Day
